Dewey’s Read-a-Thon: End of Event Meme

Thank you so much to Andi and Heather for doing such a great job!

  • Which hour was most daunting for you?

None of them! The first time I took part in the readathon, I felt a bit stressed out. There seemed to be so much going on: books to read, updates to post, photos to take, blogs to read, mini-challenges and all. But I soon figured out that I should just do whatever I can do! This readathon I didn’t really read much. I didn’t really update my blog often either! But I still had a great time!

  • Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

COMICS! All kinds of comics, like Lumberjanes!

  • Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

Not really!

  • What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

Team Popper was excellent!

  • How many books did you read?


  • What were the names of the books you read?

Ms Marvel Volume 7: Dark Reign – Brian Reed, Patrick Olliffe (Illustrations)

The Complete Essex County – Jeff Lemire

In the kitchen with Alain Passard – Christophe Blain and Alain Passard
This is the first time where I’ve read nothing but comics for the readathon!

  • Which book did you enjoy most?
  • Which did you enjoy least?

I loved them all. They were so different. One is a superhero comic. The second about life in rural Canada. The third is non-fiction and describes how chef Alain Passard of L’Arpege (a three Michelin star restaurant in Paris) works and creates his food. All three comics were great reads.

  • If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?

I wasn’t a Cheerleader but I just wanted to add again that Team Popper was fantastic!

  • How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?

I can’t wait!


  1. Congratulations on a great readathon! I like your philosophy of just doing what you can do. I kind of did the same thing too. In the kitchen with Alain Passard looks so interesting – I just put it on hold at the library.
